I'm willing to scan any DEC books that are worn out and binding failing.
I have a lot of handbooks etc that I won't cut and scan because they're
still in good condition.
But if somebody has falling-apart books, I can get them guillotined and
scan them ADF. They can then be rebound - DIY or pay someone to do it. I
know at least one bookbinder is on this list :)

I always worry about a 500 page book in softcover in terms of the binding and general sturdiness. Was there a hardcover version of this book and does anyone have one for sale?
